Transcript of "Ap calculus speeding problem"

  1. 1. Warm up A. Find the average rate of change on [1, 2] of the function: f (x) = x3 - 2x B. Find the instantaneous rate of change when x = 2 of the same function.
  2. 2. The Lame Joke of the day.. And now it’s time for.. Why did the scientist install a knocker on his door instead of a door bell? He wanted to win the No-bell prize
  3. 3. The Lame Joke of the day.. And now it’s time for.. What is the formed by Ba + Na 2? Banana
  4. 4. The Mean Value Theorem Lesson 4.2 I wonder how mean this theorem really is?
  5. 5. This is Really Mean
  6. 6. Think About It • Consider a trip of two hours that is 120 miles in distance …  You have averaged 60 miles per hour • What reading on your speedometer would you have expected to see at least once? 60
  7. 7. Rolle’s Theorem • Given f(x) on closed interval [a, b]  Differentiable on open interval (a, b) • If f(a) = f(b) … then  There exists at least one number a < c < b such that f ’(c) = 0 f(a) = f(b) a bc
  8. 8. Mean Value Theorem • We can “tilt” the picture of Rolle’s Theorem  Stipulating that f(a) ≠ f(b) • Then there exists a c such that a b c ( ) ( ) '( ) f b f a f c b a
  9. 9. If f (x) is a differentiable function over [a,b], then at some point between a and b: f b f a f c b a Mean Value Theorem for Derivatives
  10. 10. If f (x) is a differentiable function over [a,b], then at some point between a and b: f b f a f c b a Mean Value Theorem for Derivatives Differentiable implies that the function is also continuous.
  11. 11. If f (x) is a differentiable function over [a,b], then at some point between a and b: f b f a f c b a Mean Value Theorem for Derivatives Differentiable implies that the function is also continuous. The Mean Value Theorem only applies over a closed interval.
  12. 12. If f (x) is a differentiable function over [a,b], then at some point between a and b: f b f a f c b a Mean Value Theorem for Derivatives The Mean Value Theorem says that at some point in the closed interval, the actual slope (instantaneous rate of change) equals the average slope (average rate of change).
